So NOW They Key My Car? (A Night Out to See National Treasure)
11/29/04 | Cinnamon Girl

Posted on 11/29/2004 10:56:54 AM PST by Cinnamon Girl

Last night, I went to see "The Incredibles" in Century City, only, "The Incredibles" was sold out, so we saw "National Treasure" instead. It was REALLY GOOD, by the way. For anyone into American history, this was well done and interesting all the way through. Nick Cage looked good and the chick who played the main chick, Diane Kruger is VERY pretty.

Anyway, it turns out while my car was sitting in the Century City mall parking garage, some nut keyed one side of my car. Why? Could it be the "W '04" bumper sticker I still have on, since President Bush is the PRESIDENT and he WON?

Some of y'all might remember the post from August: "Dennis Prager Agrees to Put Bush/Cheney Sticker on His Lexus: LET'S ALL DO IT TODAY!!!"

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1194090/posts

It was on that day that I put the somewhat discreet "W" circle sticker on my car bumper. Up until last night, nothing had happened to my car.

I still see a LOT of Kerry/Edwards stickers on peoples cars and the "W" with the red line through it. Is anyone else still experiencing post-election liberal rage?

So check with mall security.

They may have the event on tape.

Hmmm. That's an interesting idea. I wonder if they have cameras in the garage. Probably do, huh. I was thinking, since this is LA, I should sue Dennis Prager. ;)(not in a million years.)

Some of the anti-Bush stickers I've seen are beyond hateful. Yet I would not damage the owner's vehicle simply because they are a slime ball.

I know more Bush supporters who have had cars keyed and worse than the opposite.

I don't know if this is related, but most of us have replaced our Bush/Cheney stickers with magnetic support our troops/God bless America ribbons. On two occasions at two different parking lots, I have come back to my car with the ribbon moved to cover the gas tank (The sport ute girl has an SUV). Oh well, I just move it back, no biggie.

I think my French teacher in high school (graduated in 1976) still has her "Don't Blame me, I voted for McGovern" bumper sticker still on her Citroen.

Had to take my "Expose Kerry's Fraud- Swiftboat veterans for the truth" off the back of my suv- I was run off the road on a main Hiway in the night- and had some looney honk- threaten to kick my husbands ass while he thrashed around in his car and chickened out when he pulled over. Since my spouse merely borrowed my car to get some milk and bread he was appalled at the second attack so far after only 2 weeks - he took it off my car that day. The peace loving left are crazy- and violent in their convictions- remember the SDS and the 60's activists - all crazy - In 94 I had someone tear up my car antenna the day I put a Newt bumper sticker on my new Lincoln Town Car-

We had 3 Bush/Cheney (including my Veterans for Bush sign) signs on 2 different cars. All three signs were scratched off on 3 different nights while parked in our neighborhood in California. I drove for 6 months with no problems, but after the election, one of my neighbors took it upon themselves to deny me my right to free speech. Both cars are damaged. They can't understand the morals/values issue because they have no values and disrespect other people's personal property.

Calm down some hun. If it wasn't "keyed" before the election I doubt it had anything to do with it. People who key cars most likely don't have brains and seeing a "W" on a car in most of that type of person would only indicate that your from Weehawken NJ.

I suggest a little public embarrassment for the person who scratched your car. I'm assuming your paper publishes letters to the editor. Who ever did it might feel a twinge of guilt and it might make you feel a little better. You don't know who did it but he or she does and very likely someone else knows as well.

In your letter show yourself to be above that sort of thing. Point out that nobody likes to lose but it happens to all of us. And above all express your forgiveness of that person. (even if you don't)

Century City isn't skank town. If your car is valued under $20,000 it will be towed. ;)

There really was no other cause for inspired keying than the bumper sticker. I wasn't double parked or illegally parked, nothing.

"I think my French teacher in high school (graduated in 1976) still has her "Don't Blame me, I voted for McGovern" bumper sticker still on her Citroen."

Only if she has the car up on blocks. There's no way any liberal in the U.S. still has an operational Citroen!

I've had no trouble, but my car is a beater.

My wife's cousin had all his magnetics swiped the other day and a few cars in my neighborhood were targeted with eggs on Halloween.

On a positive note, the Kerry-supporting lunatic down the block from me took down all his offensive signage (and by offensive I do not mean "Kerry/Edwards '04" signs, I mean "Send the Bush Whores to Iraq" signs).

Someone spit something like chewed up apple on my windscreen while I was eating at Denny's in Annapolis on Friday. That's the extent of it so far.

I have noticed the disappearance of "random acts of kindness and senseless beauty" bumper stickers in the DC area and all kinds of hate Bush stickers in their place (on the cars of the usual suspects). I think liberals are through with their illusions of kindness and beauty. LOL!

I have a t-shirt that has a picture of a Bush-Cheney bumper sticker with key marks through it. The caption says "A person of tolerance and diversity keyed my car."

Unfortunately, both Los Angeles papers endorsed Kerry....fat chance of them publishing such a letter.

Are you sure it was not a group against the use of the word "chick" to describe women? "PETA against chicks for food and chicks as women?"

Undoubtedly. Besides, Century City is the capital of the West Side, you're deep in enemy territory.

You might have to make a jump-shift in your assumption about
WHO and WHY your car was keyed. I would go more for the
envy theory. There are people (undisciplined juvenile minds - not necessarily an age indicator) out there who will
key your car just because:
a. YOU are a HAVE and they are a HAVE NOT
b. There was nothing better to do at the moment
c. The perp was having an anger fit at someone/something
else entirely and YOUR car just happened to be there
d. He/she knows someone who has a car just like YOURS
and he hates that person...not you!
e. any combo of the preceding...
f. There is no rational nor reasonable answer to your
question.

Wear that key mark on your car with pride and never get it repainted. Consider it a beauty mark on your car, that exposes the ugliness of the left.

Dennis Prager made a good point, though, and on that day, a lot of people in my neighborhood said 'what the heck' and put the Bush bumper stickers on. He made the point that we were going to say what we wanted to say and they couldn't control us with their vandalism.

Slightly off-topic I know BUT . . .saw "National Treasure" with my family and liked it a lot.

Recommend "National Treasure" for a satisfying movie going experience.


CAVEAT: We're not talking high art here -- simply an entertaining movie with lots of fun historical references AND a refreshing respect for the founding fathers.

"They can't understand the morals/values issue because they have no values and disrespect other people's personal property."

For openers, many of them don't believe in personal property.

In Orange County, where I live, I saw many more Kerry stickers, than Bush stickers. Obviously I wasn't the only Bush supporter opting for no stickers.

I made a decision to NOT put stickers on my cars, fearing that dems have become nasty people. It sounds like the character of dems is bad and getting worse.

Think "silent majority."

We've got a Bush/Cheney bumper sticker on our car. No damage yet. (Of course, I should mention that next to the Bush/Cheney sticker is an NRA sticker. That might scare some of those chimps off...)

I still have my "scar" from the Proposition 22 campaign of 2000. It's a nice long one that goes the entire length of my 98 Ranger. In fact, I often wonder if the dweeb actually damaged his/her key in making such a huge gouge, and couldn't get their car started.

I advise refraining from using bumper stickers.

IMO, nobody is convinced by the messages they contain, and they just make the driver feel good.

I used to have some on my van, until my back window was broken by someone who didn't like the stickers.

Then you have idiots who key cars or think that they have the right to remove the stickers themselves. It's just not worth the trouble.

The liberals in California are among the worst in the country.

I was in line to vote in S. Florida in a middle to upper middle clas precinct. I arrived at 7 am as I am a "crawl over glass to vote Republican."

Some idiot yuppie with loafers, no socks jeans and slicked back hair had a t-shirt with Bush idiot or dunce something with a picture of Bush. I really want to pull the guy out of line and start wailing on him. I don't think he was really allowed to have a shirt like that.

I sort of calmly thought about how Bush was going to win. I felt pretty confident because the futures markets and ALL of the UK bookies said Bush was going to win. The London bookmakers are almost always right and far more accurate than Zogby.

I noticed that too. Quite frankly, I found it refreshing that CG felt at ease to use the term. "Chic" is derived from the Spanish "Chica", meaning simply "young girl". It is only derogatory to the insecure. CC has a lot of insecure "Chics".

Very sorry to hear about your car. But I agree with you that National Treasures is an excellent movie. My husband and I saw it, both loved it and I like it enough to want to go back and see it with my daughter. That's rare for me. We liked Alexander the Great too, but like NT more.
